I had found Grand Oaks by pure accident & that night I told my wife about seeing the new homes being built here. The next day she called Emily Carter & set up an appointment to see the model home. We did find our lot on the plot plan & mentioned we were looking for a smaller home. Emily informed us that the lot we liked was slated for a larger home, but that she would have to check to see if we could be able to get what we were looking for. Our appointment went so smoothly, we set up a color appointment & signed the contract.
Emily informed us that the lot we liked was slated for a larger home, but that she would have to check to see if we could be able to get what we were looking for. Our appointment went so smoothly, we set up a color appointment & signed the contract. was in constant contact with us, keep us posted as to how things were going. During this process, we also met Gina Muscarello who helped us with our financial needs. Gina has been the best financial person & made such a difficult time rather flawless. She was very sympathetic to my busy schedule, accommodating us often. We met with Kennan Scully towards the end of escrow to do the walk-through & final walk-through. Kennan’s attention to detail is impeccable! He was pointing out things we did not notice right away & assured us that the minor imperfections would be fixed right away.
When we had closed escrow & received the keys to our home, we could not wait to see it as our own. Everything was as we imagined when we pulled into the drive & walked through the front door. What really caught our attention was the welcome basket & the added personal touch that Emily had left for us. Emily was with us from beginning to end during this process & we sincerely appreciate her for that.
In closing, we were prepared for this to be a rough experience as it has been in our last 2 home purchases back in California. We are so please with the “Southern Hospitality” that we have received from Emily, Gina & Keenan. Emily’s welcoming, yet fun & helpful personality is infectious! Gina was so friendly & helpful with my travel schedule! Kennan’s dedication is to his work is admirable.
My wife Patty & I have really enjoyed our experience with DSLD & look forward to many years of living in our home.
Ms. Lisa Byrd has provided me with excellent customer service! She is very kind. Homes are excellent quality at a great locations offered at a good price, with very tasteful options to choose from. Looking forward to moving into my new home, I never thought the process could be this easy and hassle free. To the staff of DSLD, keep up the good work!
What a GREAT experience. This is my 4th house purchase and was the easiest! DSLD Homes and Mortgage were AWESOME! Trey Case and Amy Nielsen made this buying experience outstanding. I recommend when looking for a home that you contact DSLD and especially Trey Case.
Everyone we have worked with made the experience wonderful. Really took a lot of the stress of buying a new home and made it so exciting. Thank you guys!
We have had such an amazing experience with DSLD Homes & everyone involved in the home buying process. Always smiling faces!
I was in awe when I viewed the spec homes at Oak Grove for the first time. The prices were incredible and the homes left me speechless. I was in the market to buy a home for about 6 months and DSLD helped me finish my quest! I can't thank them enough for their courtesy!
From day one of meeting Melinda she made us feel like FAMILY, she is the best sales agent anyone can ask for from start to finish everything was so professional, whether it's a simple question or a difficult one she has had more answers than needed. (OH MY GOD) RESPONSE TIME, email, text, phone calls, etc. she was always there. This has been a journey that went from a sales transaction to a lifelong friendship! DSLD Homes is the BEST! P.S. Steve the new Superintendent is DA BOMB!
The Cage Family saw the home that their husband/father bought for them for the FIRST TIME yesterday! We hope that you enjoy your new home in Turtle Creek!
As an agent, I decided to purchase a DSLD Home. My process started at Countryside but I ended up buying in Oak Alley. I cannot say enough about the reps at these two developments. Sandra Douglas, Aurora, Neal, and Darnell are "customer oriented". They go overboard to help! Thanks
As a first time homebuyer at the age of 61 DSLD has made the process a breeze, and everyone I have met and talked to along the way was/has been super nice and helpful. Would highly recommend buying a DSLD home! I love my new home! Welcome home, Doran! Congratulations on your new home in Orleans Run!
We had a wonderful experience with DSLD Homes altogether. The process was smooth. Our sales agent and superintendent were fantastic, personable, and informative. Our home is everything we imagined. Simply beautiful.
Carolyn, my DSLD agent was a pleasure to work with. She was professional, cordial, understanding, and has total willingness to help get the job completed from the tiny to the biggest items. My purchase was great, smooth, and easy!
Before choosing DSLD, we looked in various places for a potential home, but it wasn't until we visited a family member that had recently moved into one of the DSLD developments that we knew this could be the right fit for us. As this was going to be our first home together, we received a lot of help from family and friends about the dos and don'ts of buying a house. We researched online for DSLD developments and found several we really liked. We contacted our real estate agent and got in contact with a DSLD representative and the rest is history. It was so easy to get in contact with anyone from DSLD to answer any questions we had. Katie was such a great help and was the perfect person to help us get our new home. We can't thank her enough!
The DSLD staff was awesome. The process was pleasant and couldn't find a friendlier group of people.
Our first home buying experience couldn’t have been any better! Getting to keep up with the progress of the build and customizing a lot of what we wanted made it feel like home before it was even finished!
When we started looking at houses all the companies we went to were being difficult, taking forever to answer our questions, if they answered at all. DSLD answered back in a timely manner every time and this process from start to closing was a lot less difficult than I assumed.
Annissa is awesome!!! Annissa made the process so easy and she was extremely helpful. We love our New DSLD Home!
I have bought three homes in my life, however, our new home in Oak Grove was by far the easiest of the three. From our first visit with Annissa to our closing, every step was made easy by DSLD's professional and courteous staff. Honestly, from start to finish I can't think of a single negative experience.
Finding the perfect home for me in Oak Grove was so much fun. I looked at all of the available plans & eliminated some based on my individual circumstances. I was able to pick a house & individualize it because of all of the choices available. Even though I was so nervous to see how it would all come together, it turned out better than I ever thought it would. Knowing that my house would have features that would keep my utility bill low is something extra. Working with everyone at Oak Grove has been great!
We really enjoyed the entire home buying process. DSLD was there for us every step of the way, and Holly & Bret were such a joy to work with. We definitely recommend DSLD for anyone!
Carolyn and Kelly made our process so easy! We are so excited to get settled into the home of our dreams! Being newlyweds and expecting our first child can be stressful, but we have been so stress-free. Thank you so much, DSLD!
Those smiles say it all! Congratulation on your new home, we cannot be more excited for you both.
Hidden Farms of Prairieville's newest buyers! We love seeing our customers' dreams coming true right before their eyes. Being part of their journey is the why behind what we do. Welcome home!
Welcome home to Hidden Farms! We are so happy for you guys, enjoy your new home!
We are very happy that we chose DSLD to build our home. This was our first home and we were very worried, but Jarred and everyone at DSLD were very helpful and made the whole process stress-free. We are excited to build our family and make memories in our DSLD home.
Our experience with DSLD has been wonderful and easy! Jarred, Jason, and their team made everything simple. We love our home and this neighborhood.
Diane Sparks at Woodland Manor in Gonzales, LA is AWESOME! We absolutely love our home and neighborhood.
We just moved into our first home. This company is awesome!
DSLD made our home buying process very simple and easy. We love Oak Grove and Annissa!
Best service ever! So excited about my new home and the people I'm working with at DSLD Homes!
Diane Sparks was so helpful in the building process. We lived 828 miles away and she went out of her way to help us choose our options long distance. She kept us up-to-date on the building process. Evelyn Maher, our mortgage person was also excellent. Both of these ladies are awesome.
Laura was very helpful with everything! She was able to answer any and all of our questions and was very friendly. She made us feel comfortable and she listened to our needs to make sure that we were able to get what we were hoping for!
So enjoyed the experience with DSLD, they were excellent and accommodating. We love our new home!
We are so excited to buy a DSLD home in Victoria Meadows in Bossier City, LA. Tiffany Moss was extremely helpful and informative during our purchase process. We love our new neighborhood!
I have been very impressed with DSLD so far! The friendly atmosphere I found with DSLD has made my first home buying experience smooth and enjoyable. My builder Sales Representative has always been there to answer questions and provide information. This has truly been an amazing experience as a first time home buyer. I love that I was able to customize my home and I cannot wait to watch the construction process begin!
I am so excited to be purchasing my first home! We did it!
I was very satisfied with DSLD. Especially, the Sales Agent Tiffany Moss. She went out of her way to find a house plan and a lot that would meet my needs. I have been in the house a week and so far, no complaints.
We cannot thank Laura Hunnings enough for all that she has done to help us make our dream of living in Talla Pointe a reality. We are so thankful and excited to make this our forever family home. We look forward to creating many wonderful memories here.
I am very thankful to have met Tiffany Moss! As we were looking at different floor plans with DSLD, I was thinking "just enough" space was needed for my family. After speaking with Tiffany, she decided to show us a home that was more than "enough." We fell in love with the floor plan and now thanks to Tiffany.... we are in our FOREVER home. Thank you, Tiffany!
I recently started looking for a house in the Ponchatoula area. I viewed Maplewood and met Miss Rachael at the model home in the subdivision . As I told her what I was looking form she immediately began to provide a lot of information on the houses in the area an a new subdivision that was starting up soon. I viewed all of the floor plans and options. I decided to build on an undeveloped lot in Maplewood. A few weeks later I went for the color appointment. DSLD had a lot to offer with upgrades. I chose to add lights and upgrade my kitchen appliances along with a few other things. After that the waiting process started. It was awesome seeing all of the process it takes to build a house. From cleaning land to pouring the concrete. It took some time, but two days after the concrete was complete I had walls standing up. It has now been 4 weeks in the building process and the Sheetrock and bricks have been delivered. Miss Racheal is very helpful with all of my questions. She was able to answer them quickly. She also did a great job keeping me updated with the building process. She is very easy to contact and always replies to my messages within a few hours. The whole buying a house idea was a little scary at first but my experience so far has been very stress-free. I am very excited to do my walkthroughs and to close on my very first forever home in the Maplewood subdivision built by DSLD.
Back this adventure up about 18 months ago when my husband and I first fell in love with DSLD; Highland Oaks, Gray Louisiana. We have been patiently waiting for one of the lots we longed to build on come open; it finally did! I can't thank our Builder Sales Rep, Chris Prejean enough. He has been so helpful throughout this process as well as the mortgage officer, Mrs. Rayette Blanchard. Both of these people go above and beyond for their clients to make a dream of owning a home a reality. I highly recommend buying a DSLD Homes because from start to finish and beyond this group of people will always be there to help. It goes top show never give up or "fold." Waiting sometimes is hard to do; in the end it is worth it.
Ms. Lisa Byrd has provided me with excellent customer service! She is very kind. Homes are excellent quality at a great location offered at a good price, with very tasteful options to choose from. Looking forward to moving into my new home, I never thought the process could be this easy and hassle-free. To the staff of DSLD, keep up the good work!
I never expected to be in this situation-buying a home alone - but Rachael made me feel confident and gave me the courage and knowledge I needed to become a homeowner for the first time since my marriage ended. It wasn't just Rachael, but everyone I interacted with throughout the process that made this experience much more exciting than frightening. (I get a little scared over financial decisions and this was a BIG one). I had many questions - about the home building process, the materials, and the financing - and everyone was patient and encouraging along the way. (Morgan and Dustin and Maizy). I also talked with some other DSLD home owners who only had good things to say about their build and closing and inspection process, so I know I can trust DSLD if anything comes up post-build. I would definitely recommend DSLD to those looking to purchase a new home. Thank you Rachael for your endless patience and prompt responses and mostly for the loads of encouragement! My home is beautiful and I'm looking forward to making new memories there.
Pleasant experience, Carolyn rocks!
Abriauna and I would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to everyone from DSLD involved in helping us become first-time homeowners. DSLD made each step of the home buying process seamless and stress-free. We started the process with our saleslady, Nell Francipane, who gave us information about DSLD and the home options that were available before touring a few model homes. Nell took great care to answer all of our questions about the homes and the home buying process with DSLD. She was always available via phone or email to respond to any of our concerns, which we took great value in. She was extremely knowledgeable about DSLD's products and the process. After selecting a home, there was the loan approval process, which DSLD has made relatively easy and fast. We created an online DSLD account and uploaded all the required documents to this account or emailed them to the loan specialist. Evelyn Maher, who worked with us during the loan process, helped secure us a loan package that required very little cash to close and had a low-interest rate which were two things that were important to us. We were also able to take advantage of a DSLD promotion in which they were offering $5000 in seller credits toward closing costs if the buyer financed the loan through DSLD. After loan approval, there was the construction stage which was relatively fast. We were able to watch our home be constructed from the ground up in a time frame of 3-4 months. DSLD kept us updated throughout the construction with updates of which phase the construction was in along with informational videos pertaining to the construction phases. Finally, after construction was complete the quality assurance/quality control specialist, Steve Jennings, introduced us to our new home. We walked around the entire home (interior and exterior) and made note of any defects that would be considered below the DSLD standard. Steve was extremely knowledgeable in his role and had a keen eye for the smallest details as he was able to detect small defects that we never would have noticed. He also spent a good amount of time sharing information with us about how to perform preventive maintenance on our major appliances and components. Overall our experience with DSLD was exceptional. DSLD has a great team in place with talented, knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and friendly people. The financing that they offer with the seller credit is pretty difficult to beat. The employees operate with honesty, integrity, and professionalism. The entire process is pretty efficient and hassle-free. Most importantly, DSLD makes high-quality homes that are very pleasing to the eye in an efficient manner. I would recommend DSLD to anyone; especially a family who is just getting started in life and would like to get in a nice new home without paying a fortune in up-front costs. Thank you DSLD!!!
Colin and Keni have just purchased a home in Alexander Ridge, one of our newest communities in Covington. We are so excited to have them as part of the DSLD family! Colin and Keni are excited that some of their friends are also building a new home in Alexander Ridge as well!
Tiffany Moss is nothing short of amazing! She was completely professional, patient, and understanding during this whole process with being a first time home buyer. She explained everything with clarity and made things simple. She went over and beyond to resolve any problems that arose quickly. I was in good hands with Tiffany and she made purchasing a home from DSLD a painless and smooth process! If you are looking for a home, contact Tiffany ASAP. There was no difference with Zach, the Superintendent! The home is top quality and craftsmanship. Zach kept me updated throughout the construction period and had answers for any question that I could think of. The attention to detail that Zach referenced to during our 2 walk-through's left me impressed. Zach, is one of the best at what he does! I highly recommend DSLD Homes, because they have a dream team, that provide top notch service with great quality homes, which is fantastic!
The experience here at DSLD Homes has been phenomenal. Rachael and Morgan have made my first home buying experience a breeze! They have been helpful in all aspects from the many questions that I had, along with the information that they provided to me. Every time I talked to either one of them they always had the best attitude and answered every question promptly if it wasn't answered right then and there. Overall this whole process has gone very smoothly with no headaches due to Rachael and Morgan being very informative and sending progress pictures once construction started. I would definitely recommend buying your home with DSLD behind you, it will make the process so much easier!
We had such a wonderful experience with DSLD and everyone we have worked with! From our first meeting with Rachael and Tucker, they have both been there to answer any and all of our questions. Rachael was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. During the walkthrough, Tucker was very thorough and made sure that he took the time to help us understand everything about our new home! 10/10 would recommend!
In the Spring of 2018, my wife and I were out in the Athens area looking at new homes when we stumbled across a DSLD Homes sign. We walked in and found the perfect home for our family. Josh has been working with us from the very beginning and has been very patient and understanding with all of our questions and concerns, we truly couldn't have asked for a better Sales Agent! We have since moved into our new home and couldn't be happier!
There are not enough words to express how awesome Cyndi is in making sure her clients have her full attention and dedication from start to finish – and she goes the extra mile after the sale to make sure all are satisfied and happy. Cyndi helped us over every hurdle and made sure that everyone we dealt with at DSLD helped to make our purchase go smoothly. Without any reservation, I would recommend Cyndi to assist anyone purchasing a home. Cyndi is genuine in her desire to help you overcome any anxiety you may have throughout your purchase. She truly gives you 100 percent!
Robin was so helpful and patient with us from beginning to end. Every person that we encountered through the entire process took time to answer all of our questions and addressed any issues or concerns immediately. The whole process was very smooth and not stressful at all, we knew exactly what to expect each step of the way. After moving in and having two follow-up appointments, we are very pleased with the promptness of the supervisors in getting all of our concerns addressed and paying attention to detail. Overall, we had a great experience building with DSLD.
We just bought our 3rd DSLD Home!
Robin is an amazing Builder Sales Representative! She is very knowledgeable of the properties and she made the entire purchasing process enjoyable. Everything that she said she would do, she did it with excellence. She is definitely a major asset to the DSLD organization.
Laura was awesome! She has a wonderful personality and working with her was/is a pleasure! So happy to purchase a DSLD Home.
Our moving experience was very good! Laura did a great job of assisting us with the process, and we are very pleased with our new home! We love the layout, the colors, and the quality of the home itself.
Robert and I will be forever grateful for Laura Hunnings! She spent hours answering all of our questions and concerns throughout the construction process. She made the process so easy and took extra steps to help us with everything! Laura is incredibly friendly and she is a great person to share this experience with. We recommended her and DSLD Homes to everyone that we know. Laura Hunnings is a true professional!
Alicia Brian has made our first home building process easy and so much fun! She has been there to answer all of our questions and has explained each phase in the building process. Thank you Alicia for making our first home experience so great!
With Alan Gitz as our Builder Sales Representative, our home purchase was handled very professionally. He was and still is here to answer all of our questions. We are looking forward to working with Brandon Darter through our new home warranty period. We know his crew will see us through any issues that may develop.
I am a real estate broker and I did a final walk for an out of town client. The house was such great quality, one of the best I have seen. The sheetrock job was so close to perfect as I have ever seen. Janie Ables was fantastic - she kept my clients updated in Utah with photos of progress and weekly updates. It was a great experience for me and my clients.
DSLD made the home buying experience way more easy than we could have imagined it to be. As first time home buyers, we could not have asked for a smoother experience. Cimone Lynch with DSLD and Christian Matherne with Pennant Real Estate were a joy to work with!
Our first day of shopping was our last day of shopping! We found exactly what we were looking for at Maple Creek. We are looking forward to building our new home.
Excited to be buying my first home! Thanks so much Cimone and CJ.
Super excited! And Tiffany McGinty has been phenomenal!
"We have been preparing to buy a home for a while, we always hear how much of a hassle it is, but since we got with DSLD everything has been smooth. They helped us in every step of the way, where everything has been straight forward."
"After waiting for two long years to buy our first home, DSLD has made our dreams come true!"
My wife and I made the decision to sign a contract on a home to be built in Evangeline Estates. We decided on this home after viewing many models in different locations. The homes offered all we are looking for, but our decision was ultimately swayed by the actions and knowledge of the representatives. We were more than impressed by how each representative took the time, patience and professionalism to help my family. If it had not been for the efforts of these individuals I am not certain we would have decided to go with DSLD. This week we sat down with Chris and completed our color appointment. Chris was a pleasure during this process. He knew the products inside and out and helped us choose what hopefully will be our forever home! Now we look forward to the building process and are confident this will be the same great experience we have had in the beginning stages of this journey. We are excited to be one of the first families to reside in the new Evangeline Estates neighborhood!
Melinda and Vikki have been so amazing helping us with the purchase of our new home! We can't wait to see the finished result. Thank you!
I had the pleasure of working with Carolyn Mahl on the purchase of our first DSLD home in 2017 and then again in 2021 when we built our second DSLD home. She has been a joy to work with on both purchases and made our home buying experiences fun! It is evident that Carolyn really loves her job and she truly cares about her clients!
